    Quake Remastered is as good as a remaster can be. Not in the sense of the visual enhancements it has made, which, while fine and all, are just the tip of the iceberg. What makes this an excellent repackaging, is the content at hand, due to the addition of all expansions (+ 1), and the support for lots of fan-made and official mods, with more coming in. Melted the single player experience? Now lose your sense of time with online pvp or co-op fun, as well as Crossplay between all modern systems, including the humble Switch. This edition of the FPS classic is also super cheap, and is available for free for those who have already purchased the original. Nightdive Studios has given you plenty of reasons to start fragging and gibbing. You ought to thank them.

    My first actual full playthrough of Quake was a pretty enjoyable experience. Not only is the port a solid effort, even going above-and-beyond of what’s expected, but it’s also still a great game. Maybe not Doom great, maybe not even Duke Nukem 3D great, but there’s room in this world for all sorts of flavors of ‘90s shooter.

    Quake Remastered does the cult classic justice by offering the player not only the base game and all it's add-ons but also two bonus episodes, one of which is brand new. Coupled with 4K graphics, a slick menu and some nice extras it's a great package for fans. You can't deny it's age though - this is still a 25-year-old shooter.

    For those who have never played Quake, the remastered is an unmissable opportunity to fill this gap and to appreciate one of the first person shooters that marked an era. Carmack and Romero with their desire to innovate (and their quarrels!) Have brought the video game industry to a new dimension: Quake is the game that has marked - indelibly - the history of id Software. After the "earthquake", in fact, nothing was the same as before. Waiting for a well-deserved reboot / remake, let's console ourselves with this version that offers new content to try and the ability to relive - with a few tears - the frenzy and magic of the old and beloved first person shooters.

    This legend shows that it’s still standing strong even in the year 2021. A necessary piece of gaming education for every shooter fan.

    Quake is pretty much unchanged apart from the fact that the game can now be played on something other than a 640x480 resolution. Yes, it still looks and plays largely the same as the original but is there anything wrong with that. The game played well when it first came out, and that has barely changed at all. Does it still hold up against modern shooters such as Doom Eternal or Borderlands? Probably not. It does feel quite basic, in both the gameplay and in the audio-visual experience. But if you want to relive some fond memories of taking down the monsters from the crypt, then Quake Enhanced will hit the mark.

    Pretty good remake, fixing resolution problems, performance and better looks, also adding great new content.

    Includes all the expansions and a new one, mod support, multiplayer support with split screen.

    OH! If you already have Quake in your Steam Library you automatically get this.

    Other companies should take note, THIS is how you release a game. Don't say anything about it, drop perfection.

    It's a simple remaster, slightly better graphics, more modern lighting and rendering etc... However it also comes with all the old officialIt's a simple remaster, slightly better graphics, more modern lighting and rendering etc... However it also comes with all the old official expansion packs AND a brand new one, dimension of the machine. If like me, you already own the steam version, it gets updated to the remaster for free. It has a new nightmare mode capping your hp at 50. Don't like free updates? When you start up the game you still get the option to play the old version. No downsides whatsoever. Expand

    Good, fast and fun (while too brownish) classic FPS. With smooth framerate, incredibly fun Coop and really impressive new maps!Good, fast and fun (while too brownish) classic FPS. With smooth framerate, incredibly fun Coop and really impressive new maps!

    Unfortunately it requires Windows 10 for coop-play (which is just extortion if you ask me).

    Как набор дополнительного пакета миссий очень даже неплохо. А в плане ремастера, графика вообще никак не поменялась.Как набор дополнительного пакета миссий очень даже неплохо. А в плане ремастера, графика вообще никак не поменялась.
